  • compiz-fusion (on Ubuntu/Gutsy) and 8.42

    Hi all,

    Got the new driver compiled and all, but there's unusable display corruption when using desktop effects.
    Maybe it's using the wrong path?

    I'm just not sure...

    Do you have fglrx in your driver whitelist in /usr/bin/compiz ?

      Have you whitelisted fglrx in /usr/bin/compiz on Line ~50?

        Yes, I have.

          Is 3D working properly for you? Does "fglrxinfo" show that fglrx is used over mesa?

            Did you do a clean install of Gutsy or a dist-upgrade? In your xorg.conf do you have Composite and AIGLX enabled?

              3D is working properly:

              display: :0.0 screen: 0
              OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
              OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
              OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release

              It's a clean install of Gutsy. The old modules (8.41) were removed and the new ones were installed with module-assistant.

              I don't have composite and aiglx *disabled* - that is to say, the ServerFlags and Extensions sections are empty. compiz seems to start up just fine:

                Just to know, is anyone else experiencing this or am I alone?

                  Many people are experencing problems with compiz generally...we still have to understand if this is related to the new AIGLX implementation, to Compiz itself or to an unfortunate marriage

                    wow, i'm actually a bit envious. b/c you at least have the driver installed correctly

                    i always get MESA with the 8.42 driver even on a fresh squeaky clean install of gutsy. oddly enough the 8.40 driver worked fine using the exact same guide. anyway. if you have any ideas on THAT problem, i would love to know. sorry for changing topic.

                    anyway, i know compiz part of the system now, but when i used it with XGL i manually installed it and got some extra options. might help you. here:s the code:

                    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz compiz-core compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-gnome compiz-plugins libcompizconfig-backend-gconf libcompizconfig0
